When We Are Closed
Our local out-of-hours service is provided by NHS 111 when the practice is closed from 6.30pm - 8.00am daily, at weekends and bank holidays.
NHS 111 is the number to call if you need medical help fast but are not in a life-threatening situation.
The easy to remember, free to call number will help reduce the pressure on A&E departments and the 999 service. Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a week, the service is designed for people who aren't sure if they need to go to A&E, don't have a GP to call or generally need reassurance and advice.
On dialling NHS 111 a team of fully trained advisors and experienced nurses will assess your condition and direct you to the local service that can help you best, when you need it.
There are now only three numbers to know: 999 for life-threatening emergencies, your GP surgery and 111.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
